Ellie is one badass chick. I love her, even if some of her choices made me mad at her a few times. She is one of those heroines that you won't forget. Camden McQueen stole my heart in Sins and Needles, and in Shooting Scars he owns the lock and key. I am team Camden all the way. We also get to see a darker side of Camden in this novel, but that darker side is motivated by love, making him that much hotter. Then there is Javier. Javier is bad, and not the good kind of bad either. He is also sexy and charming, and no matter how much I wanted to dislike him, I found myself smiling and fanning my face a few times during some scenes in this book.
Shooting Scars takes you deeper into the dangerous world of the drug cartel and is filled with intense passion, danger, drama, heartache, romance, heart-pounding action and suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat while turning the pages to see what happens next. The novel grips you and sucks you in from beginning to end and I absolutely loved it. If there is one series I would recommend checking out, then the Artists Trilogy would be it.

They face insurmountable danger around every turn and aren't sure who they can trust. Love is tested on every level and in every way imaginable, as is trust, especially between Ellie and Camden. You'll be on the edge of your seat as you turn the pages to see who survives, and who ends up with whom when it's all said and done.
I honestly didn't think that Camden McQueen could get any hotter after Shooting Scars, but let me tell you this man takes it to a whole new level in Bold Tricks. I am totally swooning after him in all his hot, badass glory. Javier even had his moments when I couldn't help but like him to. In the midst of all the danger and turmoil, he manages to add a bit of humor with some of the things he says, but he really ticked me off in this novel with some of the things he does also and definitely deserved everything he had coming to him. Ellie, despite her bad choices, steps up her level of badass in Bold Tricks also and is quite the heroine.
I was very happy with the conclusion of the series and with who Ellie ends up with, as well as the way Karina Halle ended the story.
